Keppie Design has revealed its plans for a 15 storey office block on the site of Douglas House, Glasgow.

The 8,000sq/m speculative development is being developed by Patrizia UK and will replace the existing Douglas House office block on the corner of Waterloo and Douglas Street with grade A floor space.

Facilities on offer include a double height reception space, staff showers, cycle bays and surface car parking accessible from St Peters Lane.

In a statement the practice said that their scheme would “… deliver a striking and modern office building comprising a rich palette of materials incorporating aluminium, solar controlled glass and precast concrete panels in a refined and ordered layered façade.

The practice added: “This high quality treatment will be repeated on all elevations with the upper floors set back to respect the datum level of nearby buildings.

The façade is grouped in two storey portions respecting the proportions and architectural rhythm of the traditional Waterloo St Buildings. The development will also include a generous and elegant colonnade on Waterloo St which will be a welcome addition to Glasgow’s public realm.”
